Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was small, especially the bathroom, but we managed. It’s great to have a balcony, and makes the cabin seem larger. It was clean and somewhat updated.

Ship tip

If you drink wine, the 6 pack package is a good deal. So is the water package, if you want bottled water.
